13:4 Marriage is honourable in, or for all sorts of men, clergy as well as laity: though the Romanists teach otherwise. And the bed undefiled - Consistent with the highest purity; though many spiritual writers, so called, say it is only licensed whoredom. But whoremongers and adulterers God will judge - Though they frequently escape the sentence of men.

Heb 13:4 Marriage [is] honourable in all. Let it be held in honor, but licentiousness God will judge, even though men may tolerate it.

This is what is required in our churches today but even the men of God and elders are scared to preach it because they do not trust in themselves. It is the grace of god, if God says it, He will give the grace to live it. There is so much fornication and adultery in the church these days. This is all because those that should speak and teach it are not confident they won't fall foul of it. God help us. We know it is not by power nor might but we are to obey God and serve Him in spirit and in truth as He has asked of us. God bless you all.

V.4. Marriage, I think, means a life- long committment, not to be broken. Genesis 24:67 says Isaac brought her into his mother's tent and took her and she became his wife. This was before civil registration was required for a legal marriage. The ceremony was already done with God's direction by the servant who went to bring Rebecca to Isaac. An extended pursuit for the right spouse, with God's guidance, and, I believe, the legal and social procedures of a wedding is propper for our day. Otherwise the enemy may use our emotions to set us up for much misery to follow.
